It was one of the more disappointing seasons for the starting rotation during the Bud Black’s tenure as manager of the Colorado Rockies.  After running out eight different starters, including seven that made 17 or more starts, the 2022 rotation finished with a 5.23 ERA. It was only the second time Black’s rotation had an earned run average greater than…

Imagine a player with Garrett Hampson’s speed, Brendan Rodgers’ power and Trevor Story’s defensive ability. Then imagine those skills being a notch above what you’re expecting. Now place it all inside a 20-year-old shortstop. That’s Ezequiel Tovar.
